Vouch for them.

Jeff Fluhr
We worked together  •  CEO, Spreecast. Previously CEO, StubHub. Stanford GSB grad. University of Pennsylvania grad.
Noah is an awesome entrepreneur. He was an early employee at StubHub and did an awesome job. I was also on the board of Stitcher which he ... founded and led as the CEO. He is smart, strategic and fun.
Michael Ogrydziak
We worked together  •  Principal, Momo. Formerly: Director of Engineering, Stitcher.
Noah is a born entrepreneur. He was the CEO at Stitcher, where I worked as an engineer for seven years, and during that time he was both our ... fearless leader and the glue that held the company together. He naturally knows when to push things along, from the company to a meeting to an individual. He's a creative problem-solver who considers every angle and makes sound decisions. His work ethic and attitude are inspirational... go work with him already.

Michael Ogrydziak
We worked together  •  Principal, Momo. Formerly: Director of Engineering, Stitcher.
Mike was our first engineer hire at Stitcher (other than my co-founder/CTO). He's a great engineer, has become a strong manager, is tenacio ... us, driven, thoughtful, articulate and strives to be a great entrepreneur. He could get a very comfy job but chooses to fight the good fight again instead. I'd start another company with him without hesitation. He will be a great entrepreneur.

Peter deVroede
We worked together  •  Vice President, Talk, Deezer. Previously Co-Founder and CTO, Stitcher, Inc..
Peter is a great entrepreneur. He and I founded Stitcher together and worked as co-founders for 7 years, until our sale to Deezer (when I s ... tepped down at CEO and left the company). He is one of the best problem solvers I've ever met and can do great things with very limited resources. He was a true partner to me for 7 years. I would definitely start a company with him again.
